That caveat being the fact that they’re getting the right to sail only by apparent politically influenced decisions from the tourism industries governing body.

The overruling is in line with the Trump Administration ‘s abhorrent and almost complete disregard for the Coronavirus and the danger it poses to almost everybody.
